Listen in, listen Ian!
- Grown men - and it always seems to be men - who cycle no-handed. You aren't twelve, grow up, this isn't going to impress girls any more.
- Some non-drinkers. Now, I don't drink, but I have no objection to drinking, and subsequently I have many friends who don't drink, and we accept each other's lifestyle choices and get on fine. But what I really hate are the non-drinkers who smugly say "I don't need to get out of control to enjoy myself!" or some similary smuggery. Well, whoopee doo! Aren't you just the best! Or, perhaps, neither do the people who are drinking, but perhaps they just want to have a drink. I've been with pretty much all of my drinking friends when they weren't drinking, and they seem to have a pretty good time then too. Incidentally, the type of person who says this never seems to be having a good time either with or without drink, so I wonder what they do need?
Anyway, enough of such negativity and moaning, because I've booked tomorrow off to make this an extra long weekend, so I should be looking to good stuff. Tomorrow afternoon I think I'll go to look at the Londoners through a lens exhibition at the Getty Images Gallery - if anyone else fancies it come and join me! On Saturday I'm going to the rugby cup final at Wembley in the day, then I'm off to see Daniel Kitson in Regents Park at midnight. On Sunday I'm going to Whipsande Zoo in the day, and The Trap in Camden in the evening. On Monday, I imagine I'm going to have a lazy day after all that.
I dreamed last night that I was being offered a job with a basic salary of £60,000 and potential annual bonuses of up to £200,000. For some reason, I was wondering if I should take it or not.
Finally, slemslempike put a poll up yesterday of answers from her pub quiz the previous night, and invited us to guess the answer. I ended up getting diverted into creating cryptic crossword clues for some of them, so here they are for you to have a go at.
